Spokespersons for the “Community Square” block in downtown Eagle River announced to the Eagle River city council it has received significant contributions to keeping it as a pocket park for public use which may cancel any private development proposals but to make the city whole for its costs.

According to Jim Holperin the Community Square task force has received a significant pledge contribution of $125,000 from former city council member Carol Hendricks along with a pledge of $50,000 from Eagle River Rotary and $25,000 from an anonymous donor.

“Rotary and its members want to be a partner with the city in development of the community square,” Holperin said. “Our intent is to develop the property; it is not our intent to take title. We always envisioned it be be city property and we envision making the city whole.”

Thank you to Carol Hendricks for your incredible generosity! We look forward to moving ahead with this project in the new year!
